I began trying out techniques from Intentional Printing with stamping. Instead of carving erasers or linoleum blocks, Lynn shows how to cut up sheets of self adhesive foam to create a stamp. This is great for knife challenged folks like myself.
Armed with the flaps from a cardboard box and a packet of multicolored 8 by 11 inch foam sheets I created a stamp, slathered it with fabric paint, and stamped away.
I used two pieces of my mother-in-law’s old tea service cloth that I had dyed a light purple, and a piece from a damask tablecloth that got the bright orange treatment. My other supplies were a foam brush, a container that once held mushrooms, and some Folk Art fabric paint in a color called Asphaltum. The folks who made my car called the same color Urban Titanium. Just think grungy half paved road and you’ll get the idea.
